Two Way Radio Systems for Construction

Effective two-way radio communications are a safety-critical requirement in the construction industry. Instant communications are essential for maintaining a safe working environment, as well as improving operational productivity.

Working with market leading manufacturers and with unrivalled comprehensive experience in the construction sector, at 2CL Communications, we understand the two-way radio solutions required and can tailor a solution for any project, of any size. We offer free advice and will supply a robust, reliable two-way radio system tailored to your construction business requirements, together with a wide range of high-quality accessories.

Digital Two-Way Construction Radios

Since the introduction of digital two-way radio technology, there has been a vast improvement in audio clarity within environments that generate high levels of noise, ensuring that radio messages are being communicated and understood. The improvement in technology has also resulted in enhanced system reliability and performance.

Long Battery Life is Ideal for Site Radios

An added benefit of digital radio is the improvement in battery life. With a wide range of battery size and capacity and the implementation of Lithium Ion technology, some radio models can experience up to 30 hours of battery life, from a single charge. (Subject to usage conditions).

Lone Worker and Man Down Monitoring

Whether it’s a lone plant engineer, or an electrician working on key equipment, the requirement for an automated monitoring function can be met using digital radio systems.

This gives the user the ability to send off emergency alarms if they fail to respond within a pre-determined time. Lone Worker Emergency can monitor employee activity from a centralised control room, or be using a supervisor’s display radio.

With the ever-increasing importance of employee safety, two-way radio systems can provide an effective means of Lone Worker and Man Down monitoring. Combined with GPS positioning, digital radio systems can aid emergency teams in their response, saving vital minutes, to ensure that employee safety is maintained.

Construction Radio Solutions in London & Hampshire

During a recent large-scale construction project, Bouygues, a long term customer of 2CL Communications, has utilised the simple operation of the Motorola DP1400 Digital Radios and also choosing to operate using VOX, Voice Operated Transmit, for hands-free operation for slinging operations. This provides an effective means of automatic communications while leaving the users’ hands-free to signal cranes for lifting evolutions.

With the advance to digital radios, this particular customer immediately noticed an improvement in reduced interference and greater audio clarity in louder environments. 2CL also have configured an emergency button, to enhance the safety of their operations. If a user spots an unsafe operation, they can activate their emergency button, which will then lead to cessation of all operations until safe systems of work are established again.

Long Term Hire Options

Due to the nature of the construction industry and the short timescale for development projects, 2CL offer an option to flexibly hire radios for the duration of the construction. The option to hire radios on a project-by-project basis keeps customer’s returning to 2CL, and with so much emphasis on employee safety, radios are often one of the first considerations for construction projects.
